The 12th Micropol & Ecohazard Conference which will be held from June 6 to 10, 2021 in Santiago de Compostela, Spain. This conference is part of the IWA ACHSW Specialist Group conference series, which are conceived as an international forum for discussion on state of the art in scientific development and technical solutions concerning emerging pollutant emission, treatment and effects. The conference offers an opportunity to present traditional topics in parallel to more innovative themes.


  • Sources, occurrence and fate of micropollutants in real environments
  • Monitoring methodology (chemical and biological)
  • Toxicity and risk assessment
  • Strategies for source control (decentralized systems)
  • Technical solutions for drinking water treatment
  • Technical solutions for wastewater and sludge treatment
  • Water reuse for potable and non potable applications
  • Biotransformation mechanisms (transformation products)
  • Modelling micropollutants fate in natural/engineered environments
  • Fate of nanoparticles in natural/engineered environments
  • Antibiotic resistance in natural/engineered environments
  • Occurrence, fate and effects of microplastics
  • Environmental and economic assessment (LCA, LCC, etc.) of micropollutant removal at pilot and full-scale processes
  • Regulation of hazardous substances
  • Public acceptance and risk communication
  • Micropollutants perspective in developing countries
